who couldn't make it during sandy are out there and we're seeing it move in our favor. >> so you're going to be here throughout the night watching these numbers? >> can't leave now, got to watch it through. >> this alliance formed just to bring this question to the ballots. are you going stick together if this doesn't go in your favor? >> we have to stick sdpoth that's an important part about it. so many thousands on maryland engaged in this so it's important to stay on this. >> thank you. we'll be hear here as those numbers continue to come in. the maryland catholic conference is here, and the maryland marriage alliance joined with them in pushing this question to the ballot. >> cheryl, let's go to question no. four. this one on your ballots, the dream act, it would allow some undocumented students to get in state expenses at colleges, we have 58% for the dream act and 42% against. those are just a couple of the issues. let's get to the races. the democratic incumbents are vague good night. >> that's right, ben cardin will serve another term. charlie krou son and jeff hay ge
this on sandy or a divisive primary. you can blame this on the following. you have a republican party that no longer reflect what is america looks like. you have a republican party that was rightly or wrongly, perceived to be disenfranchising latinos and women -- [overlapping dialogue] >> the popular vote, it is evenly divided. >> look at the gender -- >> dirty divisive -- [overlapping dialogue] >> excuse me. the election is over. look at the returns. obama won the latino voters -- >> it doesn't matter how we -- >> let me finish my point. >> julie, finish your point. >> as i said, rightly or wrongly, you have a republican party perceived by latinos as wanted being on there side, women, want on their side. if the republican party doesn't understand they have to expand their brand and they are no longer representing white men, they will continue to lose. the more they fight that fact, the longer you will have results like this. >> promoting riskal responsibility only represents the white male brand. >> the race is over. we are discussing demographics. >> unwaivering supporter from barac
. after the first campaign, romney was ahead for a it little bit. around halloween, the sandy news started to kick in. president obama went ahead by point or less. do you see sandy play in? >> it robbed the challenger. it brought them for 3 or four days, six news cycles. the core issue was the economy. he wasn't able to get that message through for a few days. to some voters, it probably reminded some voters that this guy is reaching across party lines and reaching to the governor from new jersey. they're sitting in for the first time. i think it did help obama by freezing things for a few days and giving him that commander in chief aura. >> there is an important role that the federal government plays. romney and paul ryan talked about the government needs to get out of the way. >> romney specifically said he would cut fema. >> the last thing people want when catastrophe strikes is the government to get out of the way. >> some people remember obama came in in the middle of a crisis and he was cool headed. they were reminded that this guy doesn't react as much emotionally as we like to saee
that was hard hit by hurricane sandy and there were all sorts of questions, gwen, about whether enough people-- people who wanted to vote would be able to vote. we saw the terrible devastation there along the shoreline. but the results are in, at least as much as it takes for the associated press to make a call. >> ifill: i have read more amazing stories today about pregnant women who were on the way to the hospital who decided to vote. people who stood in the dark in lines in order to vote. in spite of what happened with that hurricane. >> woodruff: comparisons being made to hurricane katrina, not only new jersey and new york. we also want to say this brings the electoral college projected total at this point-- it's early in the evening-- to 79 electoral votes for president obama 82 electoral vote for governor romney. we know we need 270-- they need 270 in order to become president. >> ifill: of course we have to talk about new jersey because david and mark, chris christie, the governor of the new jersey, royaled the wate a littlebit this week by actually having kind things to say about pres
't moving in pennsylvania. and they felt at that point they were flattened by sandy. i don't think this race was close enough to be impacted by a hurricane. >> no. >> but that's certainly what they believe. >> chris christie, yes, springsteen's his buddy, and springsteen may have brought him over. i think that people -- i was in ohio a couple weeks ago. you know, there's great wealth in ohio. there are companies that have given out billions of dollars to people in ohio because there's oil and gas everywhere. and the whole northeast ohio was flooded withal abouts of dollars of oil money. those people are not unhappy. >> andrea, we saw it early on, and we were talking about how the right track/wrong track in ohio shifted six months ago. mitt romney, i think, one of the pivotal moments when mitt romney told john kasich, stop bragging about your economy in ohio. ohio was a leading indicator. >> it was a leading indicator. you know, the other thing about that mitigates against agreement is the people who were elected in the house, and they picked up seats. the democrats did miserably. i think you

then is, was this about the president's performance in dealing with hurricane sandy. there was a lot of speculation how this may have changed the race. governor romney was making a pitch saying i am bipartisan guy that can get things done. the storm came along, president was able to show that he could be effective and how in working with republican governor of new jersey will have to do a little more reporting but for that 9% that may have played a little bit of a role. scott john, thank you. norah, do you think sandy was a helpful octor surprise for the president? >> it appears based on some of the data that it may have been. once number of republicans hear that they're going to be angry at new jersey governor chris christie who some felt helped the president. other people said, these guys were doing their job for a lot of people who were really hurting, who lost their homes, lost their electricity for many people who died as a result of hurricane sandy. chris christie was effusive in his praise of the president. one point even praising the president for calling him and putting bru
four years ago would not take a position and remained neutral until after hurricane sandy and then said, i'm going to go with obama because we need to focus on climate change so all of these people have been affected. some are happy and some, as you heard -- >> from the mayor. thank you, barbara. what's coming up on social media. >> we talked a lot and heard a lot about the gender gap in the weeks preceding this election and, of course, tonight we talked a lot about it. but if barack obama, president obama were to sing any song tomorrow morning it might be "all the single ladies" by beyonce because single women are the fastest growing demographic in this country. they now make up a quarter of the voting age population. the romney camp, as we know, thought that the economy would trump social issues but, of course, the obama campaign kept talking about this war against women that the romney campaign was waging, so i asked women tonight who they voted for and many of the responses seemed to indicate that reproductive rights were a big motivating factor. for example, gail from virginia, not
hurricane sandy hit the northeast. stronghold for democrats that appeared destined to depress turn out for the president in some of his largest states. they said, we're just not thinking about the popular vote right now we're only focused on our battleground states. but something they're going to have to think about a lot more if these totals hold. >> pelley: thank you very much. let's switch over to jan crawford at romney headquarters in boston. certainly looking like a very different scene in boston, jan? >> reporter: it has been for the past couple hours there really has not been any good news for this crowd tonight. of course very quiet as you can imagine in this room. the questions now, of course, going to begin for the romney cam main what happened, why, for example didn't respond to some of the negative attacks over the summer allowing obama campaign to define him, particularly some of those battleground states with his work at bank capital. positions on auto industry bail out that really hurt him. people here believe, we're raising questions about that in recent weeks. when w
going. then came hurricane sandy that took the focus off romney in the final week of the campaign. romney had expected to win. earlier in the day, he told reporters he had written only one speech, a victory speech. >> it's about 1,118 words, and i'm sure it will change before i'm finished because i haven't passed it around to my family and friends and advisers to get their reactions. >> reporter: but in the end, he delivered a concession speech lasting just five minutes. >> i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader. and so, ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. thank you and god bless america! >> reporter: now, you could really see the sadness on romney as he gave that speech last night. it was a hard-fought campaign, and as he said, he didn't leave anything on the table, but there's also something more. not only was this the end of the campaign for romney, but it's really the end of his political life. his wife, ann, said last night that he will not
days about hurricane sandy and that moment where president obama was given an opportunity to go to new jersey, to look presidential and, of course, stand beside chris christie. there will be a lot of talk about that whether or not that halted the momentum once and for all, any momentum he had. but it's been up and down and a roller-coaster ride and i believe in the end the governor and ann romney thought they had momentum and were hoping they would be able to pull it off. >> we are getting ready to hear from governor romney any minute now so let's take a break. we'll be right back with that. last thanksgiving, about 2 million people tried to deep-fat-fry their turkey. 15 succeeded in setting their houses on fire. at christmas, there was a lot of driving over the river and through the woods. and a little bit of skidding on the ice and taking out grandma's garage door. so while you're celebrating, allstate will be standing by. trouble never takes a holiday. neither should your insurance. that's allstate's stand. are you in good hands? ♪ with thermacare heatwraps. thermacare works diffe
